Top 10 Bollywood Actors in Overseas: Aamir Khan is the undisputed king of overseas box office. His latest release Dangal has gone on to do historic business in China as it has grossed over $200 million. Top 3 overseas grossers Dhoom 3, PK and Dangal belong to Aamir Khan. It shows that he is now in his own league and probably no one will catch him in near future.
Shahrukh Khan comes second. When it comes to content, his most of recent releases are below the mark but the actor commands a crazy following in overseas markets. Even an average film like Dilwale did over $26 million despite the clash with Star Wars.
After the failure of Eid release Tubelight, Salman has slipped to 3rd position. This is his lowest Eid grosser since Dabangg released way back in 2010. He will be hoping to go ahead of SRK with Christmas release Tiger Zinda Hai.
Once Hrithik Roshan was the second biggest stars in overseas markets behind Shahrukh Khan. However, his recent films Mohenjo Daro and Kaabil have disappointed. Thus he has fallen to 5th position. Thanks to the downfall of Hrithik, Ranveer Singh has claimed the 4th spot despite having no release in 2017. He has SLB’s Padmavati this year who earlier gave him his highest grosser in India and overseas.
The trend for Akshay Kumar starrers remains the same as his all recent films have grossed $5-6 million in overseas. The same was the case with Jolly LLB 2. He is consistent but now needs to deliver a big grosser. Varun Dhawan’s Badrinath Ki Dulhania was a success but still, he has some distance to cover before crossing Sidharth and Akshay.
Arjun Kapoor remains at the last spot. His recent release Half Girlfriend could not do anything special in overseas. Actors like Ajay Devgn, Shahid Kapoor and Sushant Singh Rajput failed to make into the list of top 10 actors.
Ranbir Kapoor and Sidharth Malhotra had no release in first half of 2017. The former is the most popular young actor in overseas. His upcoming films are promising and will appeal toward the overseas audience.
